Growing up on the Colorado River Indian reservation as a kid, I was always told by the native American kids about the goat-man and that it was not a legend, but true. I was terrified by these stories and was always watching in the dark for him to appear.

Canon 7D, 1/60 s, f/4.0, ISO-1600, 17mm

Multi-layer photomanipulation/composite self portrait combined and shaded in PS Elements and Topaz Adjust with final coloring and HDR effect in PS Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    Excellent! The shadow reminds me of my three year old grandson….yes, even the hair ( wild man hair!)…lately everything is ‘scawy’! Great piece of work…love it!!

  • Lol, yeah, you must be wondering what’s going on in my head! There’s a contest on DeviantArt and I’ve entered multiple renderings for it just to cover my bases. I don’t get this much scary stuff out at Halloween for crying out loud! Thanks Karen!
